Debbie and I went to Spices with Rita and Bob. Rita suggested the restaurant. The restaurant seats 96 people at various 2, 4 and 6 tops plus 12 seats at the bar.
We ordered Edamame – Whole green soy bean pods, steamed & lightly salted for the table.
Bob ordered Miso soup – Tofu, seaweed & scallions. I ordered Seabass Spring Rolls, crispy spring rolls filled with Chilean sea bass & shitake mushrooms. While I ate most of the spring rolls a couple of the others had bites.
For the table we ordered:
Whole duck – served with pancakes, cucumbers, scallions and plum sauce;
Crispy Shumai – homemade open-faced dumplings with chicken, shrimp and shitake mushrooms;
Bulgogi Kimchi Fried Rice – Korean style spicy fried rice with grilled thin slices rib eye steak and Kimchi, served in hot stone pot;
Vegetables Hot Pot – Cellophane noodles, Napa cabbage, scallions, onions, carrots
